The beta announcement just came down via a DotN Kickstarter update, I can't wait! And it's Friday. Good news comes in threes?

Just got mine! Downloading now!

First impressions
40+ pages as a skeleton doc, it's going to be HUGE :)
AoD, corpse devourer are both filled in... YES!
There are a few new powers and skills so far... COOL!

OH HECK YES Starter Vignettes!
There will be TWO full sagas in this book!
Many more gods and giants than I even know about
Let's see, 6 realms, Midgard in DotN was 424 pages, so 6 realms = 2544 pages!
I have no idea what's happening in the Godi boards, but I'll read about it tonight
Noaidi? What is that?
OMG Valkyrie playable archetype, two of the players in my group are going to go through the roof!
Gods have boards?
and URGS is back LMAO will it stick this time??

OK I'm off to dig into it some more, first impressions, I'm really liking what I'm seeing.

Awww only 1 archetype ready. But I'm intrigued by the Valkyries and the potential for all the sections. Did DotN start this way?

Andrew released individual archetypes booklets then everything got merged into a bigger doc.

We really need to get our Disir up to start making immortals. The Burial skill will help.

... okay, a bit less than expected, but as it is a skeleton doc, I'm looking forward to seeing it all getting fleshed out.

Noaidi? You're making a Sami-witch archetype? Though, I thought the Son of Fenrir was supposed to be a part of this book?

I'm getting pretty twitchy about Vanir gods, but the new characters from the Core were pretty awesome.

I was hoping for more content too, but 6 more months right? What do you mean twitchy?

No you don't need more content right now because it's the first beta cycle and almost anything out of the gate will be broken. If you want a bunch of usable/stable materials for your weekly game, come back in 3 months. Pendelhaven is very right to release this limited scope, now all of our eyes are focused on what they need feedback on. All of us are looking at the same focused content, so we can have meaningful exchanges about what's there. With DotN we cycled an archetype book every week until it was playable, and then Pendelhaven released the next one. Give the archetype and denizen a play test and then post your conclusions. If everyone does it, the refinement process will be really quick.

Still waiting for mine, though I suspect it won't come until after the illuminated Edda kickstarter is over, as that is where I put my $$

Thanks for the encouraging feedback guys! Don't fret, many cool things are coming through frequent updates to the BETA doc. And to be fair, not everyone on BETA is in it to test and give feedback, some people just want to see how things come together. So we'll take the feedback we get, but not everyone will be doing so, and that's ok. :)

Hopping over to AoD where the vets are chiming in! ;)
